Wine & Dine Half Marathon - Finish line

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 2022 Wine & Dine Half Marathon Race Recap

It’s time for my all-time favorite type of post: the trip report! See all the posts in my 2022 Wine & Dine Half Marathon trip report. Onward! Would you like to know how much sleep I got the night before the 2022 Wine & Dine Half Marathon? According to my GPS watch, it was over 6 hours! New record! World record! With that auspicious start to the morning, I rolled out of bed around 2:30am and started preparations. Becky and Erika followed shortly after me, and we left our room for the buses right on the dot of our...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/4/22

It’s time for my all-time favorite type of post: the trip report! See all the posts in my 2022 Wine & Dine Half Marathon trip report. Onward! I did it! I did it! Why, I took a bad headspace and turned it into the best trip ever, just like I said I would! Okay, well, “best trip ever” would be difficult to qualify/define, but it was certainly up there. And I’m excited to tell you all about it, so let’s get started. I had a direct flight and it went smoothly, landing just about right on time. I don’t...

Race Schedule: The Next Generation

I haven’t enumerated my race schedule since October, so I’d say we’re well past due for an update! I mean, not that you can really trust me – the race schedule I plunk down on paper blog post doesn’t always jive with what actually comes to pass. But you’re not above engaging with some wild speculation with me, are you? Still, let’s start with what I do know for sure – a framework to build the speculation around, if you will… OFFICIALLY ON MY RACE SCHEDULE I’m all registered for these! FREEDOM 5K, JULY 2022 – Believe it or...

An Open Letter To runDisney

The runDisney support contact form only allows like 3 paragraphs before it cuts off, so upon publication of this post I will be sending them a link. I will also tag them on social media in the hopes someone on the runDisney team might read it. I am also interested to hear what my fellow runDisney runners think about the letter below. Has your experience been similar or different from mine? What did I get right? What did I get wrong? Send me your perspective via any channel you wish – comment below, email me at fairestrunofall@gmail.com, or DM/tag...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Tower Of Terror 10 Miler Race Recap

Trip report time! I’m covering my April 2022 trip for the Tower of Terror 10 Miler. Read all the posts in this report here. Onward! How did I feel when I woke up at 2:45am for the Tower of Terror 10 Miler? Well, let’s see: Haha, I exaggerate, obviously. I felt fine – my previous evening’s Disney Springs adventure had thankfully not left me worse for wear. But it didn’t leave me better for it either, and I can’t claim to have had a spring in my step. Seth had sworn up and down that drinking the night before...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 4/2

Trip report time! I’m covering my April 2022 trip for the Tower of Terror 10 Miler. Read all the posts in this report here. Onward! I’m gonna be up front with you guys: this day did NOT go as planned. But it did go, and I’ll tell you how! I got up around 6am in preparation for Early Entry rope drop at the Magic Kingdom. I showered, prepped, and rolled out to the Pop Century bus stations. Hot WDW trip tip: 10 minutes can make all the difference. Get up 10 minutes earlier than you think strictly necessary if...

You’re Going To Walt Disney World Again, AGAIN?

Two Walt Disney World trips in as many months?! No one can live at that speed! I know! And yet, here we are. I mean, can one run too many runDisney races in a year? I think not! Corollary remark: does all my fun money go directly to runDisney races? I think so! No matter; this may well be my last chance to run the Tower of Terror 10 Miler, and I’m glad I’m taking it. So that’s goal 1: have an absolutely smashing race. And I have other big goals too, of course. Here are some of my...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 2022 Princess Half Marathon Recap

It’s trip report time again! Read all the posts in this trip report here. Onward! First thing first: I woke up on time for the Princess Half Marathon. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it forever: this is by far the scariest part of any race. Once you’re awake, you’re home free, baby! Despite the adrenaline shot to the heart that is the shrill voice of the WDW wakeup call, I woke up feeling reasonably rested and alert considering it was 2am. I bopped through race prep, Erika did the same, and we headed out into the cold...

You’re Going To Walt Disney World AGAIN???

I know! I can’t believe it either! I’ve never done this many runDisney races in this short a time period. But I’ve been sticking to my “register for ALL the races” insurance plan, and this time it’s panning out. So back to Walt Disney World we go! This particular trip adds a fun layer of nostalgia, as I’ll be running the Princess Half Marathon. The Princess Half was not only my first runDisney race but my first ever half marathon and my first ever real race back in 2013! I’ve even dragooned Erika with doing this one with me...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: The 2022 Walt Disney World Marathon

Time for another trip report! I’ll be covering my 2022 WDW Marathon Weekend trip. Find all the posts in this report here. Onward! 2021 was the Year With No Walt Disney World Marathon. My heart: broken. My will to live: gone. My serotonin levels: bottoming out. Enter 2022. A young year, plagued by… the plague just as much as 2021, but nonetheless full of January’s promise. With it, it brought the WDW Marathon! And there was much rejoicing. I awoke that Sunday morning to the terrifying blare of the telephone wakeup call. Can’t say I slept well, but I...
